As I said in my other mail, lack of feedback is not necessarily
meaningless. If your update sits there for a week with no -1s, that
gives us a decent idea it doesn't massively break anything: exactly as
this proves. You may not get any +1s for dnssec-conf when it doesn't
break anything, but - as you admit - you *do* get -1s when it breaks
everything. So the system does, in fact, work, in so far as it gives us
a usable indication of very bad breakages.
